But one summer month we only spent 23.00.
Yes, you read that right.
Here's how we did it.
- Unplug Even if something is turned off, it is using electricity. I don't know how much, but those little things add up. I even unplug my wash machine and dryer.
- Only do full loads of laundry It takes the same amount of energy to do a small load as a large one.
- Hang things to dry I really notice the difference in our bill between the cold and warmer months, when I use our clothes line.
- Don't overload the dryer If there is no room for the heat to circulate, the clothes will take longer to dry.
- Use natural light Get decent and throw open the curtains. During the day we rarely turn on the lights. I crack the blinds in the bathroom enough to have light but still keep the privacy. Break the habit of turning on lights as soon as you enter a room.
- Energy Saving Bulbs If you are not already using these I'm not sure where you have been.
